Aiming for Net Zero – A practical workshop

  • 15th March 2023
  • 9:30 AM - 1:30 PM

Climate change is a global challenge and every business has a responsibility to take steps to reduce the impact on the environment and community in which it exists. With more and more businesses implementing carbon reduction measures and making net zero commitments, we’ve developed a workshop to support businesses through the process of reducing their environmental impact.

Our Aiming for Net Zero workshop aims to give companies the foundational knowledge to develop their carbon footprint, reduce their carbon emissions and develop a plan to achieve net zero.

During the half-day workshop, we will spend time breaking down some of the jargon, highlighting the benefits of taking action on reducing your carbon emissions and providing tips, advice, and examples of measures you can implement in your business.

Throughout the interactive session, delegates will also have the opportunity to hear from other attendees, share their own experience and ask questions. As part of the course, you will also receive an exclusive workbook and certificate on completion.

Spaces will be limited so if you’re interested, ensure you book now to secure your place!

Who should attend?

This workshop is suitable for SMEs of all sizes who would like to learn more about what they can do to reduce their environmental impact and how to get started or progress on their business’ carbon reduction journey.
